“Most individuals choose to remain residence for Diwali.” Whereas this might need been true up to now, issues positive are altering. I spent Diwali 2021 at my home-away-from-home, Narendra Bhawan at Bikaner. Having been there a bunch of occasions – to rejoice bringing within the New Yr, to rejoice Holi and several other time, simply to calm down and unwind after which, typically, to get together. Had not but visited for Diwali, so, there I used to be! It was stunning.
Sharing some images of a few of my favorite spots on the resort, in addition to preparations for Diwali and the Diwali evening get together.
It simply so occurs, that the central courtyard of the resort, is named the Diwali Chowk. Naturally, that was the placement for kicking off the Diwali festivities. Beginning with a puja with the GM Mr. Nitin Sud and carrying on upstairs, for a celebration by the pool.
Bikaner was hotter than Delhi / Gurgaon. I wore a whole lot of gold – which is completely in contrast to me – and I even preferred how the look got here collectively. A beautiful time – together with cellphone calls again residence to chatter with the household about lacking Diwali within the residence metropolis and the way unhealthy the air pollution there was! Who needs to be in Delhi when the air is poison, which it’s throughout Diwali season.
Now for some images of a few of my favorite corners on the resort.
I even discovered one thing hidden behind curtains, that I had not seen beforehand – these stunning glass baubles – they appear like custard apples to me.
A couple of black and white pictures.
A complete load of self portraits as a result of I needed to rejoice ME. I had been going by a section of feeling horrible about myself – low self-worth and low shallowness and NB appears to carry out one of the best in me, so I felt a renewed sense of, “I’m okay.” Needed to be documented.
And eventually, sunsets on the pool. They signify a means of claiming goodbye to the resort, for me. “Till subsequent time.”
